International Rivers featured on NHPR radio. Listen now!

"Clean energy will be a major topic when President Obama tours South America later this month. Brazil draws 80% of its energy from hydropower. Last year, the Brazilian government accepted a bid for construction of an enormous dam in the Amazon rainforest. Filmmaker James Cameron made a short documentary about the project this year, which like his movie Avatar, pits native tribes against big government and mining companies. Former Wall Street Journal wire reporter Kenneth Rapoza wrote about the collosal and controversial hydroelectric dam project known as Belo Monte for In These Times magazine."
